Armagh Ladies league fixtures announced

Ronan Murphy’s team now know their fate for the 2022 season. They will compete in a mini-Ulster championship in Division 2B along with Tyrone, Cavan and Monaghan.

It’s the exact same lay out of last years campaign, when Armagh faced the same opposition.

Promotion to the top tier will once again be the objective after failing to reach that target in 2021.

An opening day win over Tyrone, who they meet in the first round this season, proved to be the only points picked up last year.

That win kept the Orchard County safe from relegation fears as they finished third. Tyrone remain in the division having defeated Wexford in a relegation play off.

Cavan and Monaghan both enjoyed one point wins against Armagh last season, with the Farney ladies toping the group. They lost out in the promotion semi-final to Kerry.

Armagh got their revenge in the championship however as they defeated both teams on their way to the All-Ireland quarter-final.

Meath halted their run, but the Orchard ladies finished the year with some silverware, defeating Donegal in the Ulster final.

The two-in-a-row Ulster champs will also enjoy home advantage the following weekend, when they host Cavan in round two.

The group stages of the league campaign finishes with an away day trip to Monaghan on Sunday 6th of March.

The semi-finals, where the top two in Division 2A and 2B clash, take place on March 19th with the final on April 10th.
